Editorials. 

TX70ULD not a special course in shorthand 
and typewriting be very beneficial to 
those students intending to enter the pro- 
fession of law? Asa very proper argument 
in favor of a change in our college curriculums, 
the reasons are advanced that the courses 
should be arranged as nearly as possible to 
suit the requirements of the individual stu- 
dent. Hence, in accordance with this modern 
and progressive idea, we see the gradual sub- 
stitution in place of the old classic literature, 
modern languages and more sciences, the aim 
being to fit students so that they may enter 
into the practical professions of life without 
hindrance coming from this source. Now 
there is nothing of more immediate and prac- 
tical value to a law student than a knowledge 
of shorthand. The lawyer needs an expert 
shorthand writer to jot down evidence; the 
young law student, in a majority of cases, 
needs very much the revenue to be derived 
from such a source. Even if it were thought 
advisable not to introduce such a course now, 
nevertheless, the embryo lawyer could do no 
better than to perfect himself in this most 
important art. 

A LUMNI of fifteen or twenty years stand, 
ing who re-visit this college town and see 
many of the old familiar trees gone for one 
reason or another, are wont to complain and 
say, without knowing the circumstances, 
perhaps, that the trees have not been prop- 
erly cared for. Whether they have or not 



may be a question, but net in every case have 
young trees supplanted the old nor has the 
number been increased. Classes now set up 
the lemonade barrel beside a tree that was 
put in the ground years ago instead of within 
a few weeks by those about to graduate. If 
the planting of a tree by each class is a dis- 
continued custom, the class of '95 should 
renew it, or if it has never been done before, 
it should be begun this year, and the alumni 
oval would be an excellent place for the classes 
to institute the custom. The alumni have 
given us the field and we should endeavor to 
beautify it in this way among others. The 
Senior class should most certainly have a tree 
of its own, and the Arbor day which comes 
later in the year, would be an appropriate 
time to plant it. This event should be made 
a yearly one with appropriate exercises, in 
which the whole college should take part, 
and as Senior year is so full, hereafter each 
class might set up its tree in Junior spring. 
The college will look to the Senior class to 
start the custom. 

n^HERE would be a decided change in Dart- 
mouth life if each student should feel 
more keenly his own responsibility to its dif- 
ferent features. When a certain set of men 
refuse to pay their taxes, an additional tax is 
levied without comment. When some new 
college scheme is proposed, whether worthy 
or not, very few men take sides on it. For 
fear of unpopularity most men hesitate to 
express their opinions, if they happen to be 



164 



THE DARTMOUTH 



contrary to college feeling, Little interest is 
taken by the college at large in the business 
affairs of the different associations. A lecture 
association, which ought to be in existence, 
cannot be properly supported. By some the 
college periodicals are neglected. Many do 
not subscribe for them, and a larger num- 
ber do not compete for the editorships. These 
matters might be in a very much worse con- 
dition, but if each student should show a 
little more genuine earnestness in college 
affairs to the neglect of others less important, 
there would be no complaint from any quarter. 

'T^HE date and the events for the indoor 
meet have been decided upon and an 
endeavor should be made to make it as inter- 
esting for participants and the audience as 
possible. There will be a large number of 
contestants without doubt, and we would 
suggest more honest rivalry be awakened 
among them by making the meet a struggle 
between classes, where the indoor champions 
would be selected on the strength of the num- 
ber of points w^on as in the fall meet. This is 
done at other colleges and would make the 
coming event more exciting. 

A N unusual number of students are sick this 
winter, and other causes besides bad 
water and cold rooms can be shown for it. 
If he were to judge by appearances an out- 
sider might think that Dartmouth students 
do not possess overcoats or keep them for 
Sunday use only. We are likely to think we 
can stand most any thing in the weather line, 
but if the effects of going without proper 
winter clothing do not become immediately 
apparent they w^ill in later years. More care 
will prevent many colds. 

ly /TORE care should be given to the heating 
and ventilation of the recitation rooms 
by the janitors. Not a little sickness could be 
traced to the poorly aired rooms, now too 
cold and now too hot. Fires should be built 



earlier in them and the air changed before 
recitation time. Still less excusable are these 
irregularities in the church and library which 
are heated by a more modern system. These 
irregularities of temperature should be 
exceptional not general in occurrence. 

TF extensive alterations are to be make in 
the gymnasium next year then the bowling 
alleys should be temporarily repaired, but if no 
changes are to be made, the alleys should be 
permanently rebuilt, so that the students may 
engage in this sport so popular elsewhere. 
With two or at least one ofthe alleys in good 
order and properly equipped, bowling would 
add one to the few incentives for men not 
training for teams to exercise in the gym- 
nasium. 

TT was partially decided last term to flood 
the athletic field this winter, but the week 
or two of skating on the river evidently led 
those who planned it to defer the work. As 
good skating on the river is an uncertain 
thing, cannot the scheme be carried out that 
there may be a constant opportunity to 
engage in this pastime? Let the plan pro- 
posed by the athletic committee among them- 
selves last December be materialized. 



TsJOTWITHSTANDING many complaints, 
the dressing room in the gymnasium 
still goes neglected. On some of the coldest 
days there is no fire, while the floor rarely 
approaches anything like cleanliness. As 
there are nearly one hundred men in training, 
the annoyance has become a nuisance, and 
steps should be taken to put an end to it. 



T^7E take pleasure in announcing the elec- 
tion to The Dartmouth board of L. S. 
Cox and W. E. Dufl"y, '96, and H. H. Gibson, 
T. H. Huckins and D. J. Maloney, '97. 
Although these men have been chosen the 
competition still remains open.

The I/istetier. 

An article in the February number of the 
Forum on the subject of "Student Honor and 
College Examinations" is worthy of perusal by 
every college student. The evil of dishonesty in 
examinations is wide-spread, but from a care- 
ful estimate made from statistics gathered 
from reports of forty-two of our representa- 
tive educational institutions, it is shown to 
be on the decrease. The prevalence of this 
evil is due to the general low moral standard 
of society; students as a class are no more 
culpable than others. 

The standard of honor seems to be con- 
tinually changing with each generation and 
much for the better. The development has in 
recent years been extremely rapid, and will in 
all probability continue to be so. This has 
been accomplished not by legislation on the 
part of college faculties, but by a growth in 
freedom among college students. The growth 
of this healthy sentiment of honesty among 
the students, when relieved of all other 
restriction, has acted as a most effectual 
check upon all dishonest proceedings. Many 
of the facts gleaned from the mass of statistics 
furnished to Prof. Stevens were of the greatest 
interest as showing the advances made among 
our colleges in recent years. 

Out of the forty-two correspondents three 
write that the examinations were oral or 
mostly so, this course being adopted to pre- 
vent cheating. "In eight cases they were both 
oral and written, in nine cases mostly writ- 
ten, and in twenty-two cases wholly written. 
In twenty-nine institutions the student is not 
required to make any statement that his work 
has been independently done." In a large 
number of cases each teacher was at liberty 
to examine in any way that seemed to him 
best. In some institutions where the sj'stem 
of honor is in vogue great liberty is permitted 
to the students in the matter of leaving the 
room before the examination is completed. 
Those who report from institutions requiring 
a pledge that no aid has been given or received 
are convinced that the signing of such a pledge 



is decidedly influential in preventing dishon- 
esty. 

• 

In twenty-one institutions there is a strong 
popular sentiment against "cribbing;" in 
twelve this feeling is not so strong ; while in 
nine, although dishonesty is discountenanced 
in the case of examinations for honors, it is not 
considered disgraceful in cases where it is 
necessary for the student to do so, in order to 
escape being conditioned. In almost every 
case there is an indication of the growth 
among the students of a strong sentiment 
against all forms of cheating. 

There is a wide diversity among the facul- 
ties of the various institutions in reference to 
methods for preventing cribbing. Seventeen 
reported as in favor of the honor system, 
eleven in favor of vigilance of the examiners, 
six made use of both systems, while in eight 
cases there was a diversity of opinion among 
the members of the faculty. 

In reference to the penalties in cases of 
conviction for cribbing there was very great 
diversity. Naturally where the honor system 
is in existence the penalties are more severe 
than where the method of vigilance is in 
vogue. The maximum punishment inflicted 
is unconditional expulsion. In the majority 
of the institutions the punishment is graded 
according to the offense, the punishment being 
in addition to the rejection of the student's 
examination paper, suspension varying from 

four weeks to one year. 

• 

Cribbing seems more prevalent among 
younger than among older students, and 
among those institutions where the course of 
study is restricted rather than among those 
which offer a wide range of electives. Cheat- 
ing is wideh' prevalent among all fitting 
schools, and, for this reason, the under class- 
men of our colleges view the matter in an 
entirely different light from those who are 
more advanced in their course. 

The only means deemed effective in securing 



166 



THE DARTMOUTH 



honesty in examinations is a general improve- 
ment in the moral tone in student society. 
In this respect the sentiment of honor seems 
much more prevalent in the southern institu- 
tions, owing, doubtless, to the different train- 
ing of southern society. In several of the 
southern colleges the faculties have left to the 
control of the students themselves all cases 
arising from cheating at examinations. This 
same method has of late been introduced at 
Cornell and at Princeton with most favora- 
ble results. 

The chief difficulty is, naturally, the reluc- 
tance of students to act as informers against 
their companions, and the fact that few col- 
lege men are sufficiently mature to act as 
efficient judges of their fellows. But the idea 
of self government is not that a set of spies 
should report each misdemeanor to the fac- 
ulty, but that cases which involve the honor 
of the entire student body should be settled 
before a council of students, who should 
accomplish their work in a quiet and unob- 
trusive manner. 

••• 

The sentiment as expressed by the article of 
Prof. Stevens seems to be that within a short 
time the sentiment of honor will have full 
sway in all our colleges. The experiences of 
those colleges which have already tried self- 
government seems to warrant a belief that 
other colleges may with profit adopt this 
system. The students of Dartmouth will do 
well to study carefully this subject. Upon us 
rests the duty of maintaining the dignity and 
reputation of the college, and it is our right 
to ask for a voice in the directing of affairs 
which distinctly concern us as a body. Let 
us be ready to take our stand along with 
other leading institutions to cherish the 
sentiment of student honor. 



Only about one-half of the money at the 
disposal of the '95 book committee has been 
used in purchases. The whole amount is 
seldom expended. 



The Springfield Game as Seen Through 
German Green- Glasses. 

The following is a translation by Prof. 
Moore from what purports to be a veracious 
account of the Yale-Harvard game in Spring- 
field, as it was reported to a German news- 
paper in Magdeburg. It is safe to say that 
the humor of it is entirely unintentional. 
"Rough Sport." 

"The foot ball game between the teams of 
Yale and Harvard Universities at Springfield 
had a terrible issue. It proved to be a fright- 
ful slaughter. Of the twenty-two who took 
part seven was so seriously injured that they 
were carried unconscious from the field. One 
of them wrenched his neck, another had his 
nose crushed, a third lost an eye, and a fourth 
broke his leg. The rest suffered serious internal 
injuries. The intention to disable was per- 
fectly evident in every encounter, so that 
accident is out of the question. Moreover, 
both teams appeared on the field with a 
crowd of doctors, ambulances and attend- 
ants, which could not but make a gruesome 
impression on the spectators at the very 
start. Many ladies were present, and fainted 
at the fearful cries of the injured. There was 
a strong and bitter feeling against the bru- 
talities of the students, but terror possessed 
the spectators to such an extent that no one 
ventured to interfere. 

From other places also barbarities in foot 
ball games are reported. They resulted both 
in Shreve, Ohio, and in Worcester, Mass., in 
the death of a young man. 

Many professors at the universities declare 
in the newspapers their aversion to the horrid 
sport, and protest against its being longer 
permitted. They have many complaints to 
make in general about the conduct of the 
majority of the students. The study of the 
science has become, they say, a matter of 
secondary importance, while the pursuit of 
all kinds of sport possesses the higher institu- 
tions to such a degree that the student's 
parents are in despair, and yet unable to 
accomplish anything."

On the Athletic Question. 
Philadelphia, Penn., Jan. 28, 1895. 

Editors of the Dnrtmoiith : — From my con- 
nection with Dartmouth College, as well as 
the Medical College, and as a present mem- 
ber of the University of Pennsylvania, which 
has passed through a similar athletic experi- 
ence to that which is now forced upon Dart- 
mouth, I take a double interest in the ques- 
tion of medical students of Dartmouth being 
admitted to aid in forming her representative 
'varsity teams. 

It seems to me that the following proposi- 
tions are incontrovertible when examined in 
a fair-minded wav : 

First : That the proposal to exclude mem- 
bers of professional schools indiscriminately 
from 'varsity teams, was in its inception by 
members of the larger colleges and as urged 
by Amherst, now is urged purely on motives 
of selfishness and self-interest. 

Second : That our teams when restricted 
to the college proper can never be representa- 
tive teams, and cannot average to be as 
strong as when all our departments are 
allowed representation. 

Third : That our present pre-eminent posi- 
tion alone gives us the opportunity to make 
an effective stand against outside dictation of 
our teams, and that we must consider the 
possibilities that with weakened teams we 
may never reach such a golden opportunity 
again. 

Fourth : That it is a distinct injustice both 
to the medical students and to the college as 
a whole, that those who are clearly amateurs 
and who are not college graduates should be 
prohibited from college athletics. 

I do not wish to be understood as advocat- 
ing the playing of any student without full 
restrictions with regard to professionals, 
college graduates and length of time on 
'varsity teams, but such every Dartmouth man 
is willing to concede. 

If we tamely agree to such a demand it will 
certainly be considered a tacit admission of the 
truth of such charges of professionalism as 



members of other colleges have brought 
against Dartmouth, but which everyone con- 
versant with the facts knows to be without 
fotindation,and that no word of reproach can 
be brought against the standing as amateurs 
of the members of our teams. 

I do not wish to see the league broken up, 
but Dartmouth has once before withdrawn 
from a league on account of unjust demands 
upon her, and if we must again do this let us 
do it at the height of our prosperity when no 
one can say it was caused by inability to 
defend our past achievments, and this is cer- 
tainly the view of a large majority of Dart- 
mouth alumni in my opinion. 
Very respectfully, 

James S. Br(>wn, '92. 



Teachers' Club lyccture Course. 

The Teachers' Club seems born of the spirit 
that brings success, and the interest the men 
are taking in it shows that the plan has met 
the need of would-be teachers. There is 
already a membership of thirty Seniors.

to be an active member. He has been ready 
at all times to lend his aid, and his judicious 
counsels were very helpful. Alpha Omega

The New Catalogue. 
The catalogue of the college for '94-'95 in 
many respects is an improvement on last 
year's edition, excellent as that was. It has 
been very carefully compiled and the veracity 
of every statement is assured. It has the 
same external appearance as that for '93-'94, 
and is much the same between the covers. 
The additions and changes not previously 
noticed in this paper are statements concern- 
ijig the dormitories, the management of ath- 



letics by advisory committee, the sanitary 
condition of Hanover and its railroad connec- 
tions, and the numerous alterations in the 
schedule, the arrangement of which has 
delayed publishing the catalogue. The book 
furnishes all desired information about the 
college and reflects credit onits revisers, Profs. 
Emerson, E. B. Frost and Emery. It is 
among the best catalogues published and 
uUy represents the college. 

The Study of I/atin in Dartmouth College. 

Latin has been taught in the college from 
its foundation. For the first four years of its 
existence all instruction was given by the 
president and four tutors, but in 1774 the Rev. 
John Smith was appointed the first professor. 
His department covered the "Latin, Greek, 
Hebrew and other learned languages," which 
he was to teach as occasion should require. 
We may well believe that his position was 
not a sinecure, especially as he added preach- 
ing to his other duties, but with all his work 
he found time to prepare grammars of several 
of the languages which he taught. He pre- 
pared a Chaldee grammar which was never 
published. He published a Hebrew grammar 
in 1803, a Greek grammar in 1809, and the 
"New Hampshire Latin Grammar" in 1802, 
which went through three editions and was 
furnished by the college to the students. The 
first edition was 16mo, 4^2x7^/4 inches, and 
contained 160 pages, which were increased in 
the third edition to 204. It is small in com- 
parison with modern grammars, but it con- 
tained the essentials of Latin grammar and 
served its purpose. Professor Smith died in 
1809, having gained the reputation of an 
accurate and gracious teacher. 

The chair of Latin was not separated from 
that of Greek till 1837, when Professor San- 
born was chosen to fill it, Professor Alpheus 
Crosby taking the Greek. Since that time it 
has been independent, and for a considerable 
portion of the time it has required the services 
of two instructors. The increased call for 
instruction has been due to an increase in th<^ 



174 



THE DARTMOUTH 



college course, but mainly to the increase in 
the number of students, to the resulting in- 
crease in the number of divisions and to the 
extension of the elective system. 

The catalogue of 1822, the third after the 
change from the broadside to the pamphlet 
form, was the first to give the requirements for 
entrance to college. For Latin they are stated 
as follows : "For admission into the Fresh- 
man class it is required that the candidate be 
well versed in the Grammar of the * * Latin 
Language, in Virgil, Cicero's Select Orations, 
Sallust * * Latin Prosody ; and that he be able 
accurately to translate English into Latin." 
This requirement continued unchanged till 
1838, when the statement that the candidate 
must be "well versed" gave way to the state- 
ment that "candidates are examined," and 
for the accurate translation of English into 
Latin was substituted, "translations from 
English into Latin are also required." In 
1850 the shorter and equally vague "writing 
Latin" took the place of the earlier expression, 
and this continued for eleven years when it 
was coupled with a definite reference to a 
preparatory book in Latin composition. In 
1841 the "whole of Virgil" was substituted 
for "Virgil," and with slight variation 
remained as the requirement till 1861. Since 
that date the requirements in Latin, though 
slightly enlarged, have not been materially 
changed. Whatever change has been made 
has been in the line of greater definiteness of 
statement, and of such a framing of the 
requirement as to call for a reading, as dis- 
tinguished from a grammatical, knowledge of 
the language. 

The catalogue of 1822 was also the first to 
state the course of study. From it we learn 
that Latin was studied through the first 
term of Junior year, as follows: Freshman 
year, first term, "Titius Livius, Lib. v. 
priores;" second and third terms, "Q. Hora- 
tius;" Sophomore year, first term, "Cicero de 
Oratore;" second and third terms, "Excerpta 
Latina;" Junior year, first term, "Taciti 
Historia." In 1824 a course in "Cicero de 



Officiis" was put in the second term of Senior 
year, and this continued till 1839 when it 
was dropped and the Latin course was 
apparently extended through Junior year. 
From that time Latin continued to be a pre- 
scribed study through Junior year till 1882, 
when on the enlargement of the elective sys- 
tem Latin was prescribed only through Soph- 
omore year and was made elective for Junior 
year. In 1893 the prescribed work in Latin 
was further restricted to the end of the first 
term of Sophomore year, and all courses 
beyond that were made elective. The elective 
courses, however, were extended through 
Senior year, so that now a course in Latin is 
offered in each term of the college course. 

The prescribed work of the department is 
at present as follows: Two books of Livy are 
read in the fall term of Freshman year; two 
plays of Terence are read in the second term, 
and the Letters of Pliny occupy the third 
term. The first term of Sophomore year is 
given to the Odes of Horace. All of these 
courses, except the one in Horace, are accom- 
panied by exercises in Latin composition, and 
also with exercises in reading at sight in the 
class of selected portions of Phaedrus and 
Aulus Gellius. The elective courses begin 
with the Agricola and Germania of Tacitus, 
which give an opportunity for the study of 
the early history of Britain and of early 
Germanic customs and history. The histories 
of Tacitus, taken in the third term of Sopho- 
more year, offer a similar opportunity for 
study of early imperial history. The remain- 
ing elective courses are more distinctly liter- 
ary. In the fall term of Junior year the 
Brutus of Cicero opens the study of Roman 
oratory. Together with the treatise itself, 
there are read in the class fragments from 
other orators, several selections from Cicero 
and also his Second Philippic oration entire. 
In the second term two plays of Plautus form 
the basis of the study of Roman comedy and 
the Roman stage. In the third term Juvenal, in 
other years the vSatires of Horace, represent 
Roman satire and Roman social life. The 



THE DARTMOUTH 



175 



first course in Senior year is one in Latin liter- 
ature and consists of the study of passages 
illustrative of the development of the litera- 
ture from the earliest writers to those of late 
classical times. Special study of particular 
authors is required of the students in essays 
and discussions. The next course takes up 
Roman elegy as represented by Tibullus and 
Propertius, and in the third term Catullus is 
read, although this course is alternative with 
that in the last term of Junior year. 

A brief consideration of the course as above 
given will show the purpose of its arrange- 
ment. The prescribed part, following the 
elementary and grammatical work of the 
preparatory schools, connects that work with 
the elective courses. It readily lends itself to 
the enlargement of the grammatical work and 
to the beginnings of literary study. From the 
beginning Livy has been read in Freshman 
fall and for the reason that he is specially 
fitted for the work then to be done. His 
writing is particularly well adapted for gram- 
matical study, while his subject-matter, his 
brilliant style and his picturesque presenta- 
tion of his story arouse an abiding interest. 
Few boys who have read his account of the 
contest of the floratii and the Curiatii, or of 
the defence of the bridge by Codes, or of the 
sad fate of Verginia, or of the mighty struggle 
with Hannibal fail to retain a lasting impres- 
sion. The other authors of the prescribed 
courses carry with them a large human inter- 
est, and are intended to serve as an attractive 
gateway to the elective courses following. It 
is not to be expected that in the many electives 
offered the Latin should have a large propor- 
tion of students. For most the long time 
already spent upon it seems amply sufficient, 
and the sciences and various English subjects 
offer more inviting fields. But for those who 
have a taste for the study of language and 
who choose the Latin, the electives are 
intended to open the broad field of Latin liter- 
ature. It is believed ^that a reading knowl- 
edge of Latin can be gained apart from trans- 
lation, and thereby a real enjoyment of the 



literature be secured. A considerable part of 
theclass-room work of Junior and Senior years 
consists in reading the authors without trans- 
lating, together with such comment as shall 
call attention to the thought rather than to 
the language. The object of the work of the 
Latin department is to give such a control of 
the language as a vehicle of thought as to 
enable the student subsequently to pursue his 
study of Latin with enjoyment and success.

Memoranda Alumnorum. 

Contributions to this department are earnestly solic- 
ited from alumni and students. 

At a meeting of the college graduates of 
Fitchburg and vicinity, held January 6, a 
permanent organization was formed called 
the Fitchburg College Association. At this 
meeting J. G. Thompson, '86, superintendent 
of schools in Leominster, was elected as a 
member of the executive committee. At the 
banquet which followed Hon. Hamilton 
Mayo, '73, responded to the toast "Other Col- 
leges;" J. G. Thompson to the toast "College 
Reminiscences ;" Dr. C. N. Spring, '80, to the 
toast "The Ladies;" and Joseph G. Edgerly, 
'67, superintendent of schools of Fitchburg, 
to the toast "Co-education." 

At a gathering of Dartmouth graduates in 
Helena January 24, steps were taken to form 
an alumni association for Montana, Idaho 
and Utah, and to hold an annual meeting 
about the 18th to 20th of February next. The 
following officers were selected for the tempor- 
ary organization : H. P. Rolfe, '74, Great Falls, 
president; J. W. Flanders, '74, Helena, and 
Charles H. Eaton, '79, Helena, vice presidents ; 
A. G. Lombard, '79, Helena, secretary; Geo. 
W. Graham, '81, Helena, treasurer. A con- 
gratulatory message was sent to the Denver 
association and to President Tucker. 

The Dartmouth alumni of Detroit met Pres. 
Tucker upon his arrival there and extended 
to him a royal welcome. S. M. Cutcheon, 
'56, spoke in behalf of the alumni and was 
warmly responded to by Pres. Tucker, briefly

'33— In the death of Dr. John Lord, the 



educational world loses a brilliant platform 
leader, and Dartmouth an honored and note- 
worthy graduate. Dr. Lord was born at 
Portsmouth, N. H., December 27, 1810, where 
he lived till he was ten years old. His father 
then removed to So. Berwick where Dr. Lord 
fitted for college at Berwick Academy. Prev- 
ious to his coming to Dartmouth he was in a 
store in Dover, but made a miserable failure 
of it. He graduated from Dartmouth in 1833, 
studied at Andover Theological Seminary and 
left Andover in September, 1837. For two 
years he lectured on "Peace" in connection 
with the American Peace Society. He preached 
a few times at Marlboro and West Stock- 
bridge, but on account of his doctrinal views 
failed to settle permanently as a pastor. In 
1840 he commenced to lecture on history. 
He lectured throughout New England and at 
several places in New York. Sailed for Europe 
in '43 and lectured in England, Scotland and 
Ireland. He travelled extensively in France, 
Switzerland and Germany and returned to 
England where he married Miss Mary Porter 
in 1846 and soon sailed for America. He 
continued to lecture on history before various 
schools and colleges, everywhere meeting the 
most flattering success, till 1857, when, on 
account of his health, he was obliged to lay 
aside his labors for a time. Taking a trip 
through the southern states he returned to 
New England and settled in Stamford, Conn., 
where he built an elegant brown stone resi- 
dence. After this he continued his course as 
a historical writer and lecturer, having 
crowded houses in Boston, New York and 
Philadelphia, and often going abroad. He 
received the degree of LL. D. at the University 
of New York in 1860. He has published many 
books upon history, the last of which is 
•'Beacon Lights of History," and is meeting 
with approval of the literary public. His last 
years were spent at Stamford, Conn., with his 
daughter. Last summer he spent at Ash- 
field, Mass., with Prof. Norton, Dr. F. E. 
Clark and other literary characters, and 
returning to his home in November gradually

grew weaker and passed away quietly Dec. 
15, 1894, at the age of 84 years. He was 
twice married and had two children, one of 
whom survives him. 

'36, '61— The history of the Franklin street 
Congregational church of Manchester, recent- 
ly published, contains half-tone engravings of 
President Tucker and ex-President Bartlett, 
former pastors of the church. 

'39 — Abel Merrill, a highly esteemed citizen 
of Chelsea, Vt., died January 20, aged 84. 
He was a native of Stowe and lived for many 
years in Hartland. He also graduated from 
the Harvard Law School, and has resided in 
Chelsea since 1869. 

'41 — Mr. John James Marsh, a prominent 
lawyer of Haverhill, Mass., recently died. 

'41 — Gardiner G. Hubbard has been ap- 
pointed regent of the Smithsonian Institute, 
Washington, D. C, vice Jas. C. Welling 
deceased. 

'46, '80— The Meredith News of December 
27 printed the following: ''Hon. S. W. Rollins 
of this town closes his duties as judge of pro- 
bate for Belknap county in April, owing to 
the age limit, 70 years. He has held the posi- 
tion by appointment of Gov. Straw since '72, 
holding his first court twenty-two years ago 
the present month, and is pronoimced by his 
brothers of the legal fraternity a model judge. 
County solicitor W. B. Fellows of Tilton, is 
mentioned as an aspirant for the position. 
We regret the limit of age had not been placed 
years ahead that the judge might continue to 
hold the position he has so ably filled, for 
advanced years bid fair to be of no burden to 
him for a long while to come. 

'46 — John Gillespie Baker, son of Dr. John 
and Esther (Towne) Baker of Weare, N. H., 
and Lowell, Mass., died in New York city 
April 15, 1891, aged 67 years, of bronchial 
pneumonia complicated with paralysis. 
Mr. Baker was born in Weare, N. H., Sep- 
tember 24, 1823. After graduation he taught 
in Columbus, Ga., and afterward a private 
school in Dorchester, Mass. In 1852 he 
married Miss Mary A. Latham of Thetford, 



Vt., sister of Charles F. Latham, class of '48. 
In 1854 he entered the New York office of 
W^ells, Fargo & Co. 's Pacific express and con- 
tinued in that business about sixteen years. 
Mr. Baker was descended from Gov. Thomas 
Dudley and Rev. John Woodbridge, names 
conspicuous in Massachusetts colonial his- 
tory. He was also a descendant from Capt. 
Archelaus Towne, who commanded a com- 
pany in Starke's regiment at Bunker Hill. 
He had six children, all of whom, with his 
widow, survive him. The eldest, Arthur 
Latham Baker, born in 1853, is professor of 
mathematics in the University of Rochester, 
N. Y. 

'48— The death of David B. Whittier 
deserves more than a passing mention. He 
was born at Grafton, N. H., in 1824, and has 
resided in Boston, Mass., for the past twen- 
ty-five years. He was a genial, generous, 
whole-souled man ; a true friend to all, he 
made many warm friends by whom he is 
deeply mourned. His death was occasioned 
by a fall in his own dooryard on November 
28 last, the effects of which he survived only 
nine days, death overtaking him December 8. 
He left a wife and two daughters. 

'49— Dr. Henry H. Campbell, D. M. C, the 
oldest physician in Waterville, Me., died Jan- 
uary 1st from a general breaking down of his 
system, aged 74. He was born in Farming- 
ton and educated at Bloomfield Academy and 
Dartmouth and Jefferson Medical Schools. 
He also studied in European hospitals. He 
was a prominent member of the Congrega- 
tional church and had practiced for 40 years. 

'51 — Hon. J. G. Hall has been put in charge 
of the Dover Five Cent Savings Bank, of 
which the late I. F. Abbott was cashier. The 
savings bank will probably be closed. 

'52 — Horace R. Tarbell was found dead at 
his home in Chester, Vt., Friday, January 11. 
For some years he has lived the life of a hermit. 

'53 — Prof. Young of Princeton has an arti- 
cle on "Astronomy in '95" in the January 
Cosmopolitan. 

'54, '80 — At the annual meeting of the 



178 



THE DARTMOUTH 



stockholders of the Tilton and Belmont rail- 
road January 5, B. A. Kimball of Concord 
and W. B. Fellows of Tilton were elected 
directors. 

'72 — A very important decision was rend- 
ered by Judge A. V. Barker of Ebensburg, 
Penn,, a short time ago. The case briefly 
stated was this : Suit was brought by the 
Junior order of United American Mechanics 
against the board of directors of the schools 
of Gallitzin Borough to prevent the employ- 
ment of Roman Catholic nuns as teachers. 
The court held that the nuns aforesaid were 
eligible as teachers in the public schools, in so 
far as they made no use of the public school 



property for sectarian purposes; that the 
public school property cannot be used by any 
sectarian order for any sectarian means what- 
soever; that.the said sisters can teach in their 
religious garb and be addressed as "sister." 
Also that visiting priests may be addressed 
as "fathers;" that the public school money 
cannot be appropriated for sectarian instruc- 
tion. This decision of Judge Barker is very 
important as a precedent for many other cases 
of a similar nature that are liable to arise in 
Pennsylvania courts. Judge Barker was a 
very intimate friend and classmate of Prof. 
Colby while in college. He is a man of wide 
reputation as a lawyer and a jurist. 



It has lately become 

QUITE A FAD 

for college graduates who still hold a strong 
feeling of kinship with their old class, to 
print for private circulation 

COMPARATIVE PORTRAITS 

showing the men as they were during college 
life, and again as they are at the later period 
of their career. Several such books have 
lately been prepared, and have given great 
pleasure to those who have been so fortunate 
as to have received copies. 

CLASS GROUPS 

are also treated in this way, and are highly 

prized by their owners. Work of this nature 
is invaluable in the illustration of 

CLASS HISTORIES 

and is executed by the Helioty pe-Printing Co. , 

of 211 Tremont St., Boston, Mass., whose 
establishment is the oldest of its kind in this 
country. They are always glad to furnish 
estimates and information regarding their 
processes.

An Artistic 

Dilemma 



frequently consists 
in not knowing 
whether to at once 
buy a high priced 
instrument,or to try 
to obtain a good in- 
strument by process 
of selection among 
cheap goods. Now

BEST IN THE WORLD 

you may pay as much as you please for another make 
and you will not obtain as high quality-, or you may 
search a life-time among cheaper goods without finding 
anything that at all approaches them. When j^ou're 
ready to talk over an instrument inspect these magnifi- 
cent productions of the largest musical factory in the 
world. They are sold by leading dealers everywhere.
